BANGALORE: Bangalore University (BU) will launch midday meal programme for students and staff members on Wednesday.

While students will be charged Rs 3 per meal, staff members can avail the midday meal by paying Rs 10, which is a subsidised rate.The launch will be at the Jnana Jyothi auditorium on the Central College campus. The pontiff of the Siddaganga Mutt, Shivakumara Swami, Karnataka Legislative Council Speaker K G Bopaiah, Karnataka Legislative Council Chairman D H Shankaramurthy, ISKCON Bangalore President Madhu Pandit Dasa are expected to be present at the event.
